Residence Permit Extension

Applications to extend settlement permits ("Ausländerausweis C") and residence permits ("Ausländerausweis B") will generally be sent out by the registration office four to six weeks before a permit expires. The filled out forms have to be handed in in person at the registration office at desks 2 to 8. The fees have to be paid in advance.

Employed citizens have to get the form signed on the back page by their employer. University students and pupils over the age of 16 have to get confirmation by their headmaster. In case of early extension (up to three months prior to the permit´s expiration date) the necesary forms can be downloaded online or picked up in person at the registration office at desks 2 to 8.
